    Hi there, just got round to finally posting some pics and a quick hello to the forums.. been browsing for a while, never posted.

    Nearly owned my 2004 E46 330d touring for a month now and have some pics of a few of my rides. I bought the car in Germany as im from Luxembourg after a good few months of searching for the right one... As soon as I saw this one, I knew it was it managed to save quite a bit by buying the car in Germany and insurance in Luxembourg (I study in edinburgh...)

    Anyway, car has pretty much full options except for Xenons, which is what I'm looking into as my first upgrade right now...
    Its my second bmw coming from a 520 and boy oh boy is this 330d something special.

    I should imagine you all here know about M57 engine.. its such a joy, so much torque, acceleration, handling.. all of it, wow I've nearly had 9000km of joy in it this month, also managed to get a tyre puncture that went and dented my original BMW 135M rear rim.

    These pics are mostly from scotland on a little driving + camping tour of mine.


    I got a new camera phone so I was even more eager to test it's functions such as the panorama things.. don't diss my photo skills!
    I'm still doing an entire euro trip this summer, hoping to capture every view with my car in it

    Expensive toy.. but boy oh boy do i love it.

    Basically I ment to say hi







    I'll post up some questions soon.


    CRASH UPDATE:
    day before:

    Around a month ago, I was driving my beauty 330d back in Luxembourg and crashed. I have to mention I also got a laptime of 10.21 on the nordschleife while I was in the area, with 3 passengers
    the crash:
    It was fully my fault, at night time and on a country road. I was talking to my passenger and simply wasn't focussed on the road, then a long left corner and before i knew it, I was in the ditch.

    The ditch had a stone bridge a few meters in it, to let water go through undearneath, which meant my engine bay and front left wheel got hit at 70kmh by pretty much a wall.

    Anyway, the repair job was deemed 'too expensive' by my insurance (max cover). I was gutted big time.


    After all the paper work the insurance in Luxembourg quoted me what they thought it was worth and check this.

    I got this 330d for €14.300 in germany a few months ago.
    My fatty luxo insurance values it to €18.000, after me doing 30,000 km on it.. the market here is distorted.

    so...

    I got a new 330d touring
    I was considering others, but this is my dream car and fits my life fully. I also knew the market, exactly what to look out for so it'd be an easy buy..

    This 330d has full options and the M sport II pack, and oh my god what a difference. Never getting a bm without the pack again.

    I also took the roof bars off



    Purchased cheaper in Germany again, didn't use all the money for future repairs and new 18" alloys. Bear in mind they're coming on next summer.

    And here are the pictures.
